Press Release 2/20/: 7¢ For The Library Property Tax Initiative.Sparks Meetings Across the District

Updated: Mar 12, 2020

The 7¢ for The Library vote on April 7th is the topic of discussion at six public meetings across the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library District.

“Everyone is welcome to the town-hall-style meetings. They will be held at local libraries throughout the district. Attendees will learn about the library’s situation and the property tax levy adjustment that voters will see on the April 7th Ballot,” states Library spokesman, Greg Brown.

“The library is now to the point we are having to reduce services, and we hate that,” says Brown. He continues “the fact is, changes are coming to everyone’s library for better or worse. If voters say yes on April 7th to the 7 Cents we will be able grow and improve library services. If we fail to pass the 7 Cents then more cuts, closings, and reductions will have to continue. The small amount of added funds would only come out to be about $15 extra per year for the average property; but this would make a world of difference to many people that use and love the library’s services.”
